i'd have to chime in and say krank distortus maximus, nice and chunky pedal as long as the masters down and the volume on the amp is leveled high

I TRIED ALMOST EVERY DISTORTION MODELS IN STORES.
AND I FIND THIS RESULT

For Hard Styles
Stomp - Rat,Metalzone
Amp - Marshall,Mesa

For Less Hard Stayles
Stomp - Ds-1,MXR
Amp - Fender, Ibanez

For Boost and Solo Tones

TS-9, Boss EQ or any Boss OD

my final word is Tone is Yours as you like it.

Ever try a Metal Muff? I read good reviews on those.

I use a combo of boxes (I'm in a cover band so having an array is somewhat needed for different tones)

Let me start with this I have a JCM2000 DSL 100 I use the green channel for everything except when I cover Nickelback or metallica (or anything super overdriven, then I use the Red Channel)
on the Green channel I have the preamp set around 6 so I can roll off the volume and get a decent clean sound if I don't roll off the volume The amp sounds barely over drive, kinda like an old Lynyrd Skynyrd tone

I generally use a Boss SD-1 with Monte Allums mod for basically driving my DSL 100 over the top
and then on top of that a Boss DS-1 with a Monte triple rec mod on leads for sustain.

Depending on the set list I also have a 70's MXR Dist +, 70's Ross Distortion (Sounds just like the MXR), and a TS-7 which i set sometimes just for cranking. The SD-1 and DS-1 are always on my board though, they never come off.


Gibsons - Fenders - Ibanez's - EBMM's
Marshall - Peavey - Ashdown
Boss - Morley - Rocktron - Roland

yeah i just built a clone of a script logo MXR distortion+ it is my favorite distortion box i have played, second favorite is prolly big muff pi, wish i could find a nice fuzz box that was nice and bassy and fuzzy, i've tried fuzzfaces, a solasound tonebender clone, maestro fuzz, nothing seems to fit, the big muff is the closest, but it's more distortion than fuzz i love the sound of the solasound tonebender, but it sucks most of the bass out :-(


stuff it....... then bake it.......
